“We are a very close family and I could say that my father had a deep friendship with this wonderful woman, who gave birth to my brother. The child came suddenly and so they decided to keep it a secret,” he said characteristically.

At the same time, he stated that his brother was born when his father, Brendan “Bob” Hewson, had an extramarital affair while living in their home in Dublin with his brother Norman and their mother.

He also revealed that he has found forgiveness and peace by resolving a strained relationship with his late father, who died in 2001.I asked him if he loved my mother and he said yes. I said to him, how could this happen and he replied “it can happen”. He told me he was trying to fix it. He didn’t apologize, he just said these are the facts. Now, I’ve come to terms with it.”
